Well, you are not alone. Even the experts do not agree on which data technology you should use. However, you will find a common theme among each of the panelists in this lively video: The Data Access Menu: Making Intelligent Choices. (http://www.msteched.com/online/view.aspx?tid=fa50fd2a-05f3-41d9-aaa6-110daea9dce2)
Panelists include Rocky Lhotka, Stephen Forte, Paul Sheriff, Jeffrey Palermo, Kent Alstadt and Richard Campbell. Watch as these heavy weights in the industry talk about the various Microsoft Data Access technologies and how you should best approach each one.
This video is only about 35 minutes long, and is a lot of fun to listen to. I sure had a great time doing this panel!
